i am currently in a court battle with my daughters "father".... he has been an absent parent for the past 3 years and she just turned 4. he was in jail for drugs and i want nothing more than to keep him out of her life! he never wanted n e thing to do with her until he got another girl pregnant.... now they want to play house with my child! hes never paid child support and never even calls to see how she is doing! i just found out that he will be getting unsupervised visits with her come april! :( ive been threatened with contempt of court because i would rather keep her safe than send her with him! i dont know what to do my lawyer doesnt seem to even care and everyone is telling me that i will just have to get over and get used to the fact he will be in her life! i didnt know it was ok for parents to walk out on their children for 3 years and then just walk back in ! i need some help i dont know what to do! i thought i got rid of him years ago because hes not a good person and my daughter does not need someone like that in her life ..... if anyone has n e suggestions on what i can do please help !!!!! im in ohio and i know the laws are differrent in every state but soemthing has to be done i cant let him have her !
